Brinsley Animal Rescue is always busy looking after sick/injured animals, re-homing rabbits, ponies, goats and all manor of animals. So keeping on top of maintenance tasks can be tricky. So we possible we like to find little projects which Wildlife & Eco Gardens can do for free, to this end we look to reclaimed wood and upcycled materials, and whats better than pallets for making something out of!

After removing all the old wood, 50 barrows full of compost/nettles and being attacked by geese we finally got the area ready for the new gate.

Next task is to remove all the old compost bins from then the sanctuary first started! And plant up the area to increase bio-diversity, increase soil stability and help soak up excess water over winter!

Old compost bins overrun with nettles from when the sanctuary first started up are going to be replaced with a new border to help increase bio-diversity, soil stability and soak excess water over winter.
